5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 24 July 2008
This review is from: Silver Spoons & Broken Bones (Audio CD)
Just to set the scene, I am late 30's and a fan of rock/metal in general. I can enjoy anything from Matchbox 20 to Metallica.
I wasn't expecting too much from Stone Gods, but seeing the Classic rock review made me sit up and take notice. I'm glad I did.
The first few listens were encouraging. Burn The Witch being the best. Similar to the Darkness in terms of riffing but this time supporting by the awesome rock vocals of Richie Edwards. A perfect match.
The songs are all great. Not a single filler, and a lot of variation, but not too much so that you find the album disjointed.
There's a few potential commercial singles, but thankfully they sit nicely with the rest of the (heavier) songs and don't sound out of place at all.
I'd played the album around 10 times when it suddenly became a "repeat play" album - something which doesn't happen too often with me these days. The only song I do skip is the final one O Whereo my beero, which is ok but a little pedestrian compared to the sheer quality before it.
I checked out how the album and singles had done just now and couldn't believe how lacklustre the sales have been. The Darkness' hype obviously made the difference because this albums kicks both of their albums into touch and deserves so much more.
Awesome songs, awesome singing, awesome riffing. Buy it.
